    Welcome to HR for B 

HR Consulting for Today's Business


Whether you're an emerging firm with 28 employees, a family owned business with 175 employees that's been around since 1966, or a major publicly-held company, your needs on the HR front are different today than ever before.  How are you responding to the challenges of Coronavirus in the workplace and the community? How about all of the new employment laws, be they local, state, or federal? What are you doing to retain employees? Most importantly, how are you positively impacting your firm's culture?

If you are unsure of what your needs are, we invite you to reach out to us. Have a look around the website and/or call us directly at

617-501-4812. We are here to help. 



What do we do?

HR for B helps emerging companies find cost-effective solutions that help realize the potential a strong human resources function can achieve. We help companies create and sustain effective HR practices by offering business-focused HR consulting, customized HR training and development programs, and specialized recruiting and staffing solutions. 

Why are we here? 

HR for B came about because founder and owner Bob McKenzie felt that corporate HR had, in many cases, lacked a true partnership with the business.

Bob believes that HR has traditionally been well-meaning; however, in many larger companies it has not been as effective as it could be, sometimes resulting in HR/Business relationships that become adversarial. 

How do we work with you ?

HR for B provides straight-forward "predictive and preventive" consulting. We feel that it is our role to help customers achieve their goals rather than become a hindrance standing in the way of success. We believe that it is equally important for us to understand our client's business-- and for our clients to understand how the HR function can help them succeed.

One of our primary goals is to help you and your business grow and prosper while keeping you informed of existing and new employment-related legislation. We strive to help you best manage your day-to-day operations as well as foresee and proactively address relevant workforce developments and trends. Bob and his partners will work both on-site and off-site as required by clients. Much work - particularly with our HR consulting and recruiting businesses - may be done off-site, though there will be times where a presence in the office is critical. In those instances where travel is required, we will work with you to limit costs to the best of our abilities.
